PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Because I've been spending days browsing through XDA, reading CM changelogs, and flashing nightly builds, I'm still in an Android state of mind, so excuse me for more talk on the subject. An interesting study has been performed which found that advertisements in Android applications are a huge battery drain - they account for up to 75% of an application's battery usage.

I was just going to ask about if something does what you just described.

What would the difference be between no ad-supported apps running on the phone vs ones running but with JD running also? 5%? 10%? More?

Would probably depend on how often you configure the apps to sync. If you have things sync every 2 hours (same as with JD enabled), then the difference shouldn't be too much.

However, since I don't have any phones without JD installed, nor do I have any wish to use a phone without JD enabled, I can't give you any solid numbers. ;) JD is one of my "must be installed and enabled before I configure the phone" apps (along with 3G Watchdog).
